Alex Pelly w/ Steph Russ – PELLYVISION (06.23.18)

PELLYVISION is a monthly collision of sound and vision. Alex Pelly creates live video to accompany sounds from an artist of her choosing. This month’s guest was Steph Russ, a fellow labrat with the monthly show Heart Pressure Radio.

Steph recently played dublab’s Tonalism at Bonnarroo, which Alex did visuals for. Tonalism is an all night happening inspired by La Monte Young’s Dream House and the happenings of the 50s and 60s by artists such as Terry Riley, John Cage and Yoko Ono. Visitors are encouraged to bring pillows, cushions, and sleeping bags, lay down and listen. Steph who is known for electronic dance music, slowed it way down for the occasion, including some original ambient tracks. She shared some of these new creations with us on PELLYVISION, mixed it with other ambient tracks, while Alex used her video patches from Tonalism to visualize.

Alex Pelly w/guests Eras and Sarxx – PELLYVISION (02.24.18)

PELLYVISION is a monthly collision of sound and vision. Alex Pelly creates live video to accompany sounds from an artist of her choosing.

February’s guest was electronic music composer, Eras, who links Eastern rhythmic and tonal ideas with dark dizzying beats. His bottom-heavy modern club structures are balanced melodically and manifest in contrast to Eras’ affection for exploring off-the-grid tones and droning soundscapes. The resulting mixture is an intoxicating work of unique electronic pop culled from synergic experiments that give voice to Eras’ shadowy productions. Interested in exploring the ambiguous sounds between notes and non-traditional scales, his exotic melodic approach meshes well with the Southeast Asian percussive elements that are woven into Eras’ expansive palette – inferring IDM mutations of UK Bass, Footwork, Garage, House, and Techno. Eras will be on tour North American tour with Lief Hall in April. He is also hosting shows at his new warehouse venue, Vertexx.

Eras did a back to back dj set with up and coming artist Sarxx of B.u.r.n. LA.
